The Football Association have released the constitutions for its step 7 leagues for the 2019/20.
The big news is that alongside promoted Division One champions Newbury and runners up Maidenhead Town, Finchampstead will take a space in the Thames Valley Premier League Premier Division.
The full step 7 constitution is available here for the country, but Finch’s promotion comes in no small part due to the division running two teams light last season (12 instead of 14) despite finishing fifth in Division One.
Finch were members of the Hellenic League until 2017 when they were relegated for not meeting ground grading criteria.
One other interesting bit from the constitution sees bottom side Woodley United Royals reprieved while Wokingham & Emmbrook Reserves are missing from the list.
Here’s the Thames Valley Premier League 2019/20 constitution
- Berks County FC
- Burghfield FC
- Cookham Dean
- Maidenhead Town
- Reading City U23
- Richings Park
- Westwood Wanderers
- Windlesham United
- Woodley United Royals
- Wraysbury Village
Berks County revently confirmdd their home games would be played at the new Ryeish Green Sports Hub in Wokingham Borough.
Update: please note the TVPL have issued the following guidance on the constitution:
Please be aware that while @FA have now control over Step 7, this is still to be ratified and confirmed at our AGM, Tuesday 11 June.
Looks a bit tasty though, eh?#TVPL
